Me Me Me

Hi all you nice visitors to my little asylum. For those interested I am studying history at the University of St Andrews (where they play golf). I am, *sob*, going into my final year, so it's dissertation time for me. And then I have to find a real job. If a history degree hasn't made me completely unemployable. We're not really talking about what I'm going to do next year. Not even if you were to hijack me on my messenger identity: [email protected]

Read the h2g2 Post

Yeah, so anyway - that's H2G2's very own newspaper, for which I write currently: a few little bits and pieces. I'm still in admiration of my shiny "Post Reporter" badge which now appears in all skins! You can see what I've written for them here, at 'Swiv's Bits'. I'm also toddling of to Uganda for the summer to do some voluntary work, so I'm hoping to put some reports of that together come September (nothing like planning ahead). In the meantime, please give a big hand to Shazz, the very wonderful editor.

There's plenty of other fun places to go to in the Guide. For those of us who like to write or just critique there's the wonders of Peer Review - plus it's kind of essential if the Guide is going to keep going. For the talkative:Ask H2G2, How Do I?, Miscellaneous Chat Forum.

And now there's the All H2G2 Patrick Rafter and Tennis Appreciation Society. Founded by Caper Plip the club has a host of facillites. I am the personal cocktail mixer for Xavier Malisse. So hop on over. I'm also the Wizard of Harry Potter and the University of St Andrews (two things I can claim to have a fair amount of knowledge of... just don't ask me on which page something happens) over at the Guild of Wizards. Finally, for the less chirpy amongst you - which at the last count included me everytime the weather is not sunny and fresh, there is PUDDING.

Don't ask me how it works or I'll start to whimper

The Search

"Some people do not have to search, for they find their niche early in life, and rest there seemingly content and resigned. At times I envy them, but I do not understand them, and seldom do they understand me. I am one of the Searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we completely content. We continue to explore life hoping to uncover it's ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach; we are taken by its power and ceaseless motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests, mountains, deserts, hidden rivers and lovely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our life as our laughter. To share our sadness with those we love is perhaps as great a joy as we know, unless it is to share our laughter. We Searchers are ambitious only for life itself and anything beautiful it can provide. Most of all we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering and prevent our search. This passage is for wanderers, dreamers and lovers who dare to ask of life all that is good and beautiful." - anonymous
